I also need to say that once you have cooked it.......break it down into serving sizes and vac-pac or use heavy duty zip-loc bags get the air out and mark, date and freeze and use it as soon as possible..  Freezing  does not kill bacteria, only cooking kills bacteria.
actually you can refreeze meat as long as it has stayed cold. The only thing that will happen is you will lose quality. This is information from a Food microbiologist. If the meat has warmed up it is best to cook it first. However, if it has defrosted and stayed cold for up to 18 hours you can re-freeze safely.
